To help children deal with that and to let them feel like and accomplish what non-arthritic kids do every day, the Arthritis Foundation in 2003 established Camp Dakota, a summer camp for kids.

During Arthritis Month, please support the Arthritis Foundation, West Virginia's efforts in research, advocacy and the many ways we provide help and support to people with the disease and their loved ones. Be sure to spread the word – to family, friends, coworkers, everyone you know – that arthritis has to be taken seriously. It’s America’s #1 cause of disability and can be painful, debilitating and costly. The Arthritis Foundation is hard at work on solutions. We need your help to win the fight once and for all. read more
